Trips which are planned to complement classroom learning are a regular feature for both Junior and Senior pupils. They offer an opportunity for our students to broaden their horizons, see things with their own eyes and find out how things operate in the real world.


Exchange programmes

The benefits to be gained from international travel tie in naturally with the global outlook of St Leonards and the International Baccalaureate. Our exchange programmes have been running for a number of years. They give pupils the chance to travel abroad and to develop real friendships and lasting ties.

Each year students studying French in Year 11 travel to the Alfred de Vigny School in Loches, in France’s Loire Valley.

Every Spring pupils studying German in Year 10 set off for the Sankt Benno School in Dresden for a week long adventure.

The students from the French and German schools later visit St Andrews for the return legs of the exchanges.

Further foreign trips

Children in Year 7 at the Junior School enjoy a trip to Paris in June, giving them the chance to put their language skills to the test.

In the Senior School and Sixth Form, regular trips are also organised to the likes of Salamanca, Florence, Sorrento and Rome to provide enhanced learning experiences in Languages, Geography and Classics. Every two years Drama students have the opportunity to travel to New York for an unforgettable Broadway experience. For those keen on winter sports, opportunity comes in the form of a skiing trip to the Alps.

Closer to home

The School takes full advantage of its position in the ancient town of St Andrews. Minutes after leaving their classrooms on foot, Junior and Senior pupils can be learning about the history of St Andrews Cathedral and St Andrews Castle, visiting the Museum of the University of St Andrews or surveying the geological landscape of the East Sands Beach.
